White K-r discontinued?

B&H lists it as discontinued, but Adorama has them. If I want a white one, should I get it now? I wanted to wait until Feb or March

There is probably a replacement out in Jan as the rep said something at the Photokina or some event in France in October.

I'd get it from Adorama before it's gone- if Pentax is already discontinuing the fancy colors, then I'm sure a new body is coming soon...

Looks like it's only a few bucks more with the 18-55. That makes sense since I the only lens I have in Pentax K mount is 50 f/2 now. Will trap focus work with M42 lenses(with adapter of course), or with A lenses only...which MF lenses does trap focus work with? That's an awesome feature that can be done only with AF lenses on my Nikons. And does it do rear or 2nd curtain sync with flash?

Don't know about the flash, but trap focus ("Catch in Focus" is the term Pentax uses in the manual) works for both M and A lenses. Should also work with M42 mounts. It is way cool IMHO.

Not all M42 lenses short out the correct pin for Catch-in-Focus to work. This is easily remedied with some foil tape.

Yep, there is a trailing curtain sync setting available. I've never used it, yet, so I can't give too many specifics.
